24 Festive Tasks: Door 15 – St. Nicholas’ Day / Sinterklaas, Task 3:
If your holiday family traditions should include bowls or plates filled with gingerbread, cookies, oranges / tangerines, chocolate, nuts and the like, share a photo with us!
Here’s my assortment — this year’s edition:
The traditional Christmas-y stuff:
“Christstollen” (Christmas loaf cake), “Printen” (spicy, crunchy gingerbread bars), “Frankfurt Bethmännchen” (round marzipan and almond cookies), “domino cubes” (chocolate-coated cubes filled with gingerbread mass, chocolate and jelly), and chocolate-coated almond gingerbread cookies
— and the not-necessarily-Christmas-y-but-melt-in-your-mouth-sinfully-delicious stuff: white chocolate and crushed almond tartuffi (pralines) and dark chocolate pralines (both Italian)
… and a chocolate Santa, and two snowmen wearing chequered scarves and red winter bonnets, just because!
